Converted from iBlog to WordPress

I’m annoyed with iBlog. It’s nice enough, but there are a few problems.

  1. Development has slowed considerably.
  2. It uses a proprietary and ugh-ly way to store and refer to other entries.
  3. With the exception of the iLife applications, getting information into and out of iBlog isn’t very convenient.
  4. Moblogging is only possible with the addition of a paid service.

I just don’t want to deal with a single license of a proprietary product any more.

Besides the fact that I can update things from a web browser, there are tools that support the WordPress format like ecto and MarsEdit. One cross-platform browser, Flock, is even geared toward updating weblogs, with a built-in editor and a “Blog This” function.

There are likely to be some issues. I think I’ve caught most of them but please do let me know if you find a broken link or an image that doesn’t load.

Is this the return of the blog? I don’t know. We’ll see. There’s no shortage of material, only time. This conversion might make things a little easier.
